Editorial. Considers how environmental and occupational health risks are increasingly a focus of public concern. Physicians who are commonly faced with requests for information about the consequences of exposure to chemicals or physical agents such as radiation and noise; Reference to a research letter in the same issue by Dr. Artnarong Thansandote et al on an investigation about exposure to radiofrequency radiation (RF); Details on the electromagnetic spectrum; Challenges that physicians face about communicating risks of RF.

    Objectives: It has been shown that low frequency noise (LFN), defined as broadband noise with dominant content of low frequencies (10-250 Hz), may be annoying to exposed subjects. The aim of the study was to compare the degree of annoyance caused by LFN with that caused by broadband noise (BBN)...
